Security: There is another user with the same login already logged in..??

    we just got a VPS with Ubuntu and Plesk on it. Its a great tool.. :)
    I configured the server and I set a strong root password and public keys for ssh.
    Also Plesk has a very strong password for the admin user.

    I configured Plesk and now 5 hours later I logged into the admin account again and got the message "There is another user with the same login already logged in" as admin. Session time is only 30min... Now I am a little bit confused what happend there. I checked the action log and everytime when I did a log in, there was a log out for the session. Also I only saw logins from my IP.

    I still worry a bit what could cause this message. I was able to login without problems, but this message makes me feel little bit nervous if someone got admin access and deleted the log login entries..

    What do you think? I can't believe the system got compromised so fast because I really take care of security, but I am still a paranoid person so maybe there is something what i missed.. :-/

    Paranoia gets even worse.
    What is that for a user without group or right above the admin?

    Try to reset all session parameters back to their default values:

    Go to Tools & Settings > Session Idle Time (in the Security group) and click Default. The default session idle time will be set to 30 minutes. Click OK.

    Hi Igor,
    thank you for your reply.
    I talked to my VPS Hoster and they told me the "admin is already logged in message" even when I successfully logged out before comes from internal Plesk maintaining features. So I should not worry about it any longer... :)

    The empty session like on the screenshot was just a session failure they told me.
    It also disappeard from alone.

    So for now I try to trust my server again... :D
